Happy Homemaker Monday - 9/17

 The Weather:::   It has been simply gorgeous here most days – upper 70s and sunny during the afternoon and brisk in the lower 50s in the mornings and evenings.

On my reading pile:::  Last week I finished “The Widow of Larkspur Inn” by Lawana Blackwell, “Return from Tomorrow” by George C. Ritchie, and “Inescapable” by Nancy Mehl.  The first was my favorite and it really made me want to go and live in a small, country village!   I started “The Keeper” by Suzanne Woods Fisher on Saturday and ended up finishing it on Sunday.  Four out of five of these books are about the Amish – I have been reading so many books about them lately! 

On my tv:::  Our cable has been off for a week now and I think I may just have to get it turned back on :/   It’s not going so well just watching DVDs in the living room!  I’ve watched nothing aside from CSI: Miami and CSI: NY all week. 

On the menu for this week::: 

Sunday  -  Surf n Turf with baked potatoes and green beans (Em’s request)
Monday – Crockpot chicken fajitas with homemade guacamole & blue corn chips
Tuesday -  Having dinner with a friend from church
Wednesday -  Stuffed shells with steamed broccoli
Thursday – Jake’s football game & then dinner with family
Friday -  Tacos & Mexican rice salad, baby carrots
Saturday -  Dinner at my parents’ house

On my to do list::: 
Grocery shopping
Lesson planning/homeschooling
Washing the walls

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::  I’ve been working on Scripture journals.  Sort of like a smash book with Bible notes, scripture, hymns, inspirational quotes, etc. 

Homemaking Tips:::  I’m starting to think there is nothing better than hot, soapy water!

Looking around the house:::  I made some pumpkin spice “Febreeze” to spray my bedroom linens with and I just love the scent.  My bed is comfy and cozy with lots of pillows and 3 quilts! 

From the camera:::  

On my prayer list::: 
Friends from church
Friends and family members who are not saved
Upcoming election & our country
Countries praying for this week:  Phillipines & Poland

Come close to God, and He will come close to you.  James 4:8
